Hello, I took these photos of a large raptor in the Cuilins on Skye last September.  Can anyone help me to identify the bird please?

There was two of them, circling, with crows or other smaller birds following.

Any thoughts very gratefully received!

Thanks
Libby

I believe its a Honey Buzzard and .......... the smaller birds will attack them if they get to close to nests/ territory etc ............ Buzzards do not take birds in the air , they are to slow and usually eat carrion or small rodents
